What causes pain, pressure, lump and ringing feeling in ears?

Intermittent pain in both ears and pressure. I went to an ENT had a ct scan came back normal. Also did a hearing test which came back normal. Constant ringing and feeling like my hearing cuts in and out. Mainly on the right ear. I also have a lump in front of my right ear and behind my TM joint that has been there for about 3 months now. The ENT said that these nodes are non cancerous and nothing to worry about. I have been having this problem for a couple months now and it seems like both my PCP and ENT have run out of ideas.

Hi
ringing of sound in ear is called as tinnitus. there are many reasons for it. the investigation of choice is magnetic resonance imaging and if needed along with angiogram. It can only give you a confirm diagnosis for the cause. If they are too normal. Nothing to worry. Now tinnitus is reduced by taking ginkoba extract tablets. Which will give you a lot of symptom free.
wish you a speedy recovery. thank you.
